ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - While not everyone saw rain today, where it rained - IT POURED. Scattered thunderstorms bubbled up in the afternoon heat. A couple strong, to severe, storms impacted Metro Atlanta; causing minor road flooding in a couple spots.

Showers and thunderstorms are weakening as we approach the 9 p.m. hour. Plan on a drier night, with just a slight chance of spotty rain showers after 11 p.m. Areas of fog may develop overnight, especially in spots that received heavy rain today.

Outside of any fog, plan on a mix of sun and clouds to begin Saturday. Morning temperatures bottom-out in the low to mid-70s inside the Perimeter; upper 60s and lower 70s further out of Atlanta. Sunshine sends temperatures into the low to mid-80s by noon; peaking in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Like today, it’ll feel a bit hotter than the actual air temperature.

The risk of pop-up showers and storms increases through early afternoon. Keep a closer eye on the forecast if you have afternoon or evening outdoor plans. A couple storms will produce a lot of lightning and heavy rain. It’ll be the kind of day where outdoor plans can go on, but you may have to adjust for a bit.

Scattered Saturday rain diminishes through the evening, but a couple showers remain possible early Sunday. More scattered showers and thunderstorms are forecast to develop Sunday afternoon and evening.

A ‘cool front’ and greater chance of rain may creep into the forecast later next week.

Have a great evening,

Cutter
